Statement of Priorities and Programmes of Work for 2020-2021




“It is essential that children and young people in the

county have access to a good, local school.


It is widely recognised that the quality of school buildings can help or hinder learning and teaching, so our comprehensive build and maintenance programme will ensure our children can learn in the best environments to help them succeed.


We have been working for several years now to

ensure we have enough capacity in Staffordshire to meet demand, either by expanding existing schools, or by building new ones, and we continue to plan for the future.”


Philip White, Cabinet Member for learning and Employability
